My Pictures, Your Stories 2

Here are more pictures for the storytelling game. Here are the instructions from the first set:

From time to time I will postillustrations that I’ve created through my 3-D art programs, and anyone who wants to can write a short story inspired by that image. It can be just a few words, such as “I think this is a picture of…” or it can be a full story up to, roughly, 1000 words.

OR, you can play a game with other participants by writing an unfinished story and letting someone else finish it. Or several peoplecan add bits until somebody finishes it.

Alternatively, you could write a poem inspired by the picture.

Just post your story or poem in the comment section for this blog entry.

Eminent Domain Off Target

This article is from June, sent to me a while back by our friend Tim Warner. Since I like to keep up with the battles against eminent domain, I must link to this article HERE.

Note, June 30, 2013:  The above link no longer went to the original article, but to the front page of Town Hall magazine, so I looked for an eminent domain article at Town Hall from June, 2007.  All I could find was a Fred Thomson piece from July, 2007.  Probably not the same article, but it’ll do.

My Picures, Your Stories!

Here’s a little fun for those of you, children or adults, who like to make up stories.
